Our small luxury vehicle allows us to move away from the hustle and bustle of the loud tourist routes, where we can enjoy small nature walks and take our time to experience the destinations surroundings.

The Ring of Kerry offers dramatic landscapes of wild rugged coastline, golden beaches, glistening lakes, picturesque villages and spectacular mountain ranges.  For decades it has been considered one of the most beautiful destinations to explore in Ireland. This amazing guided tour takes you along the spectacular Wild Atlantic Way as you experience the most dramatic scenery that Ireland has to offer. After the pleasant walk on Valentia Island, you will get the chance to sample the fresh seafood and local craft beers in a nice cosy Irish Pub. Discover the bustling and colourful Portmagee village.  Delve into its incredible history and heritage, explore its magical setting on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean and if you are lucky to get a glimpse (weather permitting) of the spectacular Skellig Islands (Star Wars famed).

Ring of Kerry, Valentia Island, Derrynane*, Torc Waterfall Bray Head Walk

Early Morning

Our first stop of the day is at the beautiful Dingle Bay Viewing point. Here we will have a brief photo stop overlooking the Wild Atlantic way.

Next up we’ll make our way to the small town of Cahrciveen. Here we’ll make a brief stop at a local supermarket to buy some snacks to enjoy on our hike.

Late Morning

After a toilet break and some extra time to grab some snacks in a local shop, it is then on to Valentia Island. On the island, we will make our way to the start of the trailhead.

The views from here are simply breathtaking. On a clear day, you will see the very famous Skellig islands, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1995. It was an island were monks settled in the 6th century after they fled Europe during the dark ages.

Early Afternoon

This loop gives wonderful views over Valentia Island, Portmagee, the Skellig Islands and the Dingle Peninsula to the north across the water. We will follow the stoney road to the top of the peninsula and from there you will be able to scramble down the narrow paths to the edge of Europe.

Late Afternoon

After the walk, we will make our way back onto the Ring of Kerry tourist road. We’ll stop buy Derrynane historical park, the fairy forest and Derrynane Strand. From there we will travel back to Killarney, through the national park, taking in the views of Ladies view and Torc Waterfall.

*Please note:  If we are running late after the walk we may have miss out on Derrynane Historical Park & Fairy Forest. If there is poor visibility on Bray Head, we go to Derrynane because it’s more sheltered and below any mist coming from the Atlantic.
